Textbox control does not display indic language text correct

Post by hgiri »

Hi Tiku:

I am trying to use the Unicode textbox to display text in an Indian language called Kannada. I have set the font to Arieal Unicode MS (which as the character set for Kannada) and the Usesystemfont to false. The textbox displays Kannada characters but incorrectly:

This is the original and correct rendering of the text produced using a Unicode-compliant word processor.

This is how it shows up in the textbox when I paste it.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi,

Can you send me the string that you used (as a series of Unicode codepoints or similar), so that I can experiement with it?

If you are experienced with C++, you could also setup a small C++ project that contains an edit field (the native one, not mine) and is setup to use Arial Unicode MS. If the text looks the same in this native edit field as in my control, it's very likely a problem of Windows itself. In this case there's little I can do. If the text looks fine in the native edit control, it must be a problem of my control.

Do you know any font that supports these codepoints?
